'Weekend warriors' still see health payoff

CBS This Morning—January 10, 2017

CBS This Morning reports on a new JAMA study that finds that people who squeeze all their recommended hours of exercise into the weekend see major health benefits.

Jordan D. Metzl, MD, primary care sports medicine physician at HSS, goes into the studio to discuss.

"I am a big fan of exercising every single day," said Dr. Metzl. "What this showed was if you did nothing, that's not good for you. If you did nothing during the week and a lot on the weekend, that's better than doing nothing."

They also discuss the rise in popularity of high-intensity workouts.

"I am really interested in the science of intensity and high intensity workouts, and what I found is that compressing that workout into 10, 15, 20 minutes first thing in the morning is tremendously helpful," said Dr. Metzl. "You can really maximize your benefits."
